"The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

Memorial Day Weekend 2009

We had such a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! It was literally one of our best trips with the kids in well probably ever! We left Sunday right after church and headed here:

This is our sweet little cottage that we absolutely LOVE! It is on Andrew's parents land in Grandbury, TX. They have worked very hard to make it such a beautiful and peaceful place. It is just the perfect spot with a wrap around porch and a lakeside view. I wish we could go every weekend! It has been difficult in the past because as most of you know, it is great to have schedules and such until you try a new place where your 2 toddlers and and infant have to either sleep in pack and plays or a new bed. It usually makes for not a whole lot of sleep, but this time we weren't woken up until 6:30 a.m. (and that was a great improvement from last time when we almost packed all 3 kiddos up to go home at 3 in the morning b/c we hadn't slept yet.) So, it was a much needed little break for us. Things are so crazy at the church right now that it is hard to shut your brain off and we actually managed not to have a church conversation until the drive home. That is WAY good for us as we are always trying to be every body's hero and hate it when we can't be if that makes since. SO, here are some pics of our lake stay:

Walking out to the dock (for Audrey's first time.)

Daddy and his girls.

Our sweet cousin Peyton having some Ainsley time.

Audrey wanted to just be in the boat and not in the "yucky" water as she called it. She is always our little princess. :)

This was such a fun part of our weekend! Austin and Audrey got to ride jet skis for the 1st time! Here is Audrey with Grandpa about to take a ride. She wasn't so sure about it at first, but funny story - we were out on the lake riding around and I look over at Audrey and she has completely fallen asleep! Who does that?! It was too funny, but also just like something our little sleeper would do! So, her first ride put her to sleep! Ha!

Two very happy boys at this point. Austin thought he was driving the whole time and he was so proud of himself!

Right before the napping jet ski ride with Grandma and Grandpa Werley.

This was right before Andrew and I got to go out on the lake by ourselves. We had a blast and it was almost equivalent to a date night! So fun!

I just love this pic! Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Werley for making the lake such a wonderful retreat for our family. I have a feeling that we will have many amazing memories at this place and we are looking forward to coming back asap!

What a great time for the Werley family! Looks like a great place to use as a family get away - as a family in ministry, you really need to be able to get away & focus on each other & the kids!
